Quarterly Report


Item 2 - Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following management's discussion and analysis should be read in connection with the information presented in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes for the three months ended September 30, 2012 included in this report and our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes for the year ended June 30, 2012 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on October 15, 2012 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements concerning our plans and intentions included herein may constitute forward-looking statements. There are a number of factors that may affect our future results, including, but not limited to, (a) our ability to obtain additional funding for operations, (b) the continued availability of management to develop the business plan and (c) successful development and market acceptance of our products.

This annual report may contain both historical facts and forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, those mentioned above. Moreover, future revenue and margin trends cannot be reliably predicted.

Overview
Eco Building Products, Inc., or "ECOB", has developed a line of eco-friendly protective wood coatings that extend the life of framing lumber and other wood used in the construction of single-family homes, multi-story buildings as well as The Eco Shelter™ which serves as cost-effective housing for the world.

Eco Building Products wood coatings are topically applied to lumber protecting it from mold, mildew, fungus, decay, wood rot, and Formosan termites. Eco's newest product, Eco Red Shield™ also serves as a fire inhibitor protecting lumber from fire, slowing ignition time and reducing the amount of smoke produced.

The ECOB system of coatings is eco-friendly and remains chemically stable over time. The coatings emit virtually zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), do not leech heavy metals or toxins into groundwater, inhibit the growth and propagation of various molds that have the potential to contaminate occupant indoor air quality. More importantly, ECOB coatings prevent the degradation of structural lumber that potentially requires existing homes to be periodically rebuilt due to rot and/or wood ingesting insects/termite damage preserving our forests.

The Eco Building Products line includes dimensional lumber, wall and floor panels, I-joists, GluLam Beams, LVL beams, truss lumber and trim. These products can be coated at our production facilities and at the mill or distributor with our proprietary formula and coating machines. Additionally the company has six authorized affiliates producing Eco Red Shield coated products. The Company sells concentrated coating materials to the affiliate network creating additional revenue streams.

By supporting and providing value added lumber materials direct from our facilities or the distributors and manufacturer, ECOB can create a compelling value package. This package is offered to builders, and provides the protection of ECOB coatings at a price that compares favorably to raw, untreated wood.

Critical Accounting Policies

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We evaluate our estimates on an on-going basis, including those related to revenue recognition, stock-based compensation, inventories, income taxes, warranty obligations and contingencies. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making the judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Estimates and judgments used in the preparation of our financial statements are, by their nature, uncertain and unpredictable, and depend upon, among other things, many factors outside of our control, such as demand for our products and economic conditions. Accordingly, our estimates and judgments may prove to be incorrect and actual results may differ, perhaps significantly, from these estimates.


We believe the following critical accounting policies reflect our more significant judgments used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements.

Lines of Credit with Detachable Warrants Warrants issued to obtain a line of credit are recorded at fair value at contract inception. When warrants are issued to obtain a line of credit rather than in connection with the issuance, the warrants are accounted for as equity, at the measurement date in accordance with ASC 505-50-25 "Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees". The issuance of these warrants is equivalent to the payment of a loan commitment or access fee, and, therefore, the offset is recorded akin to debt issuance costs. The deferred fee is amortized on a straight-line basis over the stated term of the line of credit

Issuances Involving Non-cash Consideration All issuances of the Company's stock for non-cash consideration have been assigned a dollar amount equaling the market value of the shares issued on the date the shares were issued for such services.

Stock Based Compensation
The Company accounts for stock options issued to employees and consultants under ASC 718 "Share-Based Payment". Under ASC 718, share-based compensation cost to employees is measured at the grant date, based on the estimated fair value of the award, and is recognized as expense over the employee's requisite vesting period.

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation to non-employees under ACS Topic 505-50 "Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees." This standard defines a fair value based method of accounting for stock-based compensation. In accordance with ACS Topic 505-50, the cost of stock-based compensation is measured at the grant date based on the value of the award and is recognized over the vesting period. The value of the stock-based award is determined using a mulit-nominal lattice model or the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, whereby compensation cost is the excess of the fair value of the award as determined by the pricing model at the grant date or other measurement date over the amount that must be paid to acquire the stock. The resulting amount is charged to expense on the straight-line basis over the period in which the Company expects to receive the benefit, which is generally the vesting period.

Revenue Recognition and Concentration Risk We recognize revenue in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") - Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 605-10-S25 Revenue Recognition - Overall - Recognition. ASC 605-10-S25 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered; (3) the fee is fixed or determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on management's judgment regarding the fixed nature of the fee charged for products delivered and the collectability of those fees. The application of these criteria has resulted in our generally recognizing revenue upon shipment (when title passes) to customers. Should changes in conditions cause management to determine these criteria are not met for certain future transactions, revenue recognized for any reporting period could be adversely impacted.

All items sold, we sell to end users, job sites and distributors and are sold as is. We offer a replacement warranty for items that are deemed not acceptable at the time of delivery. We will offer the customer a maximum of a 30 day period of time to request a replacement item period. Any items that a customer wants to return for credit we charge a 25% restocking fee as this is stated in every quotation.

These arrangements do not include any special payment terms (our normal payment terms are 30-45 days for our distributors), price protection or exchange rights. Returns are limited to our standard product warranty. Certain of our distributors have contracts that include limited inventory rotation rights that permit the return of a small percentage of the previous six months' purchases.

Warranty Reserves. We offer customer a 10 year replacement warranty against Mold, wood-Rot and Termite damage for the value added portion of company's service such as the coating applied to the raw lumber. This warranty is backed by an 11 million dollar product liability policy and a 5 million dollar mold rider in which the company maintains a deductible policy on it. As of current, the company has not yet experienced any warranty claim against this stated warranty policy.


Inventory Valuation. We currently value our inventory at the average cost. We write down inventory for obsolescence or lack of demand, based on assumptions about future demand and market conditions. If actual market conditions are less favorable than those projected by management, additional inventory write-downs may be required. On the contrary, if market conditions are more favorable, we may be able to sell inventory that was previously reserved.

Going Concern

Our continuation as a going concern is dependent upon obtaining the additional working capital necessary to sustain our operations. Our future is dependent upon our ability to obtain financing and upon future profitable operations. Management plans to seek additional financing through the sale of its common stock through private placements. There is no assurance that our current operations will be profitable or we will raise sufficient funds to continue operating. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event we cannot continue in existence.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

On September 30, 2012, we had $3,394 cash on hand. During the three months ended September 30, 2012, net cash used in our operating activities amounted to $1,649,638. Net cash used during the same period for our investing activities totaled $21,523 which was used for the purchase of property and equipment. During the same three month period, net cash provided by our financing activities totaled $1,563,304, of which $235,455 was received from related party advances and notes and $1,327,849 was received from debt issuance.


During the three months ended September 30, 2011, net cash used in our operating activities amounted to $1,711,368. Cash of $66,437 was used by investing activities during the same period, which consisted of $29,473 of purchasing of property and equipment, $25,000 of purchasing of software license and $11,964 payments for equipment deposits - related party.

During the year ended June 30, 2011, we entered into an investment agreement and a revolving line of credit and warrant purchase agreement with Manhattan Resources Limited, a Singapore Corporation ("MRL") and Dato' Low Tuck Kwong ("LTK"), a controlling shareholder of MRL. Under the investment agreement, we received $5,000,000 in exchange for issuing 81,000,000 shares of its common stock. Effective July 26, 2011, we obtained the ability to borrow up to an additional $5,000,000 on the revolving credit and warrant purchase agreement, in exchange for the issuance of warrants to purchase 50,000,000 shares of our common stock at $0.10 per share to MRL as a loan facility fee. Of this amount $3,000,000 was borrowed in July 2011 and $2,000,000 was borrowed subsequent to September 30, 2011. As of the date of this filing we had cash on hand of $3,394. Since the Company had borrowed the entire $5,000,000 line of credit during the three months ended December 31, 2011, which made no credit was available under this agreement at this period. On October 25, 2012, we made a proposal to MRL and we have started to pay interest on the $5,000,000 line of credit to MRL quarterly. For detail please refer to Note 9, Subsequent Events on the condensed consolidated footnote.

If current and projected revenue growth does not meet management estimates and proceeds received from MRL are insufficient, we may choose to raise additional capital through debt and/or equity transactions, reduce certain overhead costs through the deferral of salaries and other means, and settle liabilities through negotiation. Currently, we do not have any commitments or assurances for additional capital, other than MRL, nor can we provide assurance that such financing will be available to us on favorable terms, or at all. If, after utilizing the existing sources of capital available to us, further capital needs are identified and we are not successful in obtaining the financing, we may be forced to curtail our existing or planned future operations.

We may continue to incur operating losses over the next twelve months. Our prospects must be considered in light of the risks, expenses and difficulties frequently encountered by companies in our stage of development. Such risks include, but are not limited to, an evolving and unpredictable business model and the management of growth. To address these risks we must, among other things, obtain a customer base, implement and successfully execute our business and marketing strategy, continue to develop and upgrade technology and products, respond to competitive developments, and attract, retain and motivate qualified personnel. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in addressing such risks, and the failure to do so can have a material adverse effect on our business prospects, financial condition and results of operations.

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements or financing activities with special purpose entities.
